Calderdale Council is currently considering the next phase of its approach to the delivery of supplies and services that maintain its buildings.
At the meeting of Calderdale Council’s Cabinet on Monday 3 April, Members will review a number of delivery options, taking account of cost, quality and, importantly, the impact on the local economy. This builds on previous work and partnerships with local suppliers that have strengthened this area of work while delivering significant financial savings.
Once the way forward has been agreed, the Council intends to hold a number of supplier conferences, providing local businesses with opportunities to find out more about the proposed packages of work and the contract process, ensuring that all suppliers are given equal opportunity to take part.
Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economic Development, Cllr Barry Collins, said:
“When sourcing suppliers for Council service contracts, we have to make the best use of our resources and deliver good service as well as good value for money. The recommended option ticks all these boxes – supporting our local economy as well as achieving savings and delivery of services.
“There are already a number of existing local suppliers providing excellent services to the Council, but to further support and grow the economy it’s important that we continue to build on this work. This will create further opportunities for our local businesses to contribute.”
The item will be discussed at the meeting of Calderdale Council’s Cabinet on Monday 3 April at Halifax Town Hall at 6pm.
